Petition to repeal Article 50 breaks UK Govt. petition site

The Brexit trainwreck has been speeding towards some kind of conclusion, and despite the EU giving a bit of an extension, it’s not exactly clear what’s going to happen.

While email addresses are easy enough to set up, doing that in real time at high volume is less straightforward.

Additionally, while it is possible to buy lists of email addresses stolen in various data breaches on the black market, the owner of the list would still need to access those email accounts and retrieve the validation email before being able to sign in the name of somebody else.

Yes, well, many of those data breaches also included passwords.
